The Anonymous Widower

Passing The Ordsall Chord Site

The first set of pictures were taken on Friday between Deansgate and Salford Cresent stations show the current state of the bridge across the River Irwell.

I took these pictures were taken on the Saturday, as my train from Liverpool went between Eccles and Manchester Victoria stations and then from a second train from Manchester Victoria on its way to Wigan via Salford Central and Salford C resent stations.


  • The first train was the 11:20 from Liverpool Lime Street to Manchester Victoria.
  • The second train was from Manchester Victoria to Wigan Wallgate.
  • The biggest crane on the site has a capacity of 1,350 tinnes and is the largest mobile crane in the country.

I’ll be going back, when it all reopens to have a look.

Probably the best way to get the pictures is to go to Manchester on a sunny day, buy a Lancashire Day Ranger ticket and constatntly shuttle back and forwards across the various lines.
